Looks like a couple of netballers mixed in with the bunch.

You didn't run over his bloody sheep dog, did you, One Dog Rooted?

Have you replaced the tyre yet? What did you end up fitting?

Ah the verdant countryside. Difficult to take a bad photo at the moment I reckon. Kudos nonetheless.

If I was to make a hasty guess, I'd say Trial Hill and environs. Must get back out that way again soon.

Out of the front you will but I'm bettin you don't get anywhere near that from the rear, I only got just over 2000k's out of my last rear on the 640

See how you go but 1WD put new TKC'S on his 990 before our Sunday ride and the rear is disappearing at an alarming rate

My now departed 1200GSA shod with TKC80s got 1800km rear & 3500 front.

Nice lookin' tyre but they disappear quicker than Mike Rann when there's bad news!

I'm thinkin' of going 908 rear & K60 Heidi on the front of the 990

So very true...

I was considering buying another (a 140 instead of a 150 for comparisons sake ), before the trip. But I'm thinking if I'm sensible it should last... Fingers crossed!

Looking forward to latching up on a ride soon.

If you can make it to next years Flinders Classic III , be sure to ask Kipo or Trev about gates

I was thinking of "dances with dogs" but too many words so gateshutter it is, I will oil the hinges on the gates, always good to have any advice on how to handle gates
